Recycle Utah

This Green Earth - January 9, 2018

Jan 9, 2018

As this year began, China banned the importing of 24 different materials considered recyclables. What are these materials? How will this ban effect U.S. recycling markets? And who might replace China as the leader in reprocessing our paper, plastic and metal?  Nell and Chris speak with Reece Demille of Republic Services and Carolyn Wawra of Recycle Utah about how the ban will affect their recycling businesses, and what you can do to help.

Calling for all High West bottles.  Take your empty bottles to Recycle Utah where they are available for resale for projects or parties!  Remember, glass should never go into your curbside bin. 

Set a Green Goal for 2018. Join the Recycle Utah staff by challenging yourself to reduce your waste. We are saying no to single use coffee cups, plastic straws and plastic grocery bags in 2018. Join us and share your Green Goal with us by tagging @recycleutah on social media.

Did you know that EPS/Styrofoam is not accepted in your curbside recycling bin? Drop off clean white packing foam at Recycle Utah’s 24/7 recycling center instead. No food-related containers please. For more info, contact Recycle Utah, at 435-649-9698 or visit recycleutah.org

There was a big turnout at the city council meeting last week with Recycle Utah leading the charge to ban plastic bags in Park City once and for all.  In 2013, the efforts didn’t quite sway council to ban single use bags but this time residents stepped up. Carolyn Murray has more on the Recycle Utah monthly update.

It’s time to clean out those half empty bottles of fertilizer, old gas containers and cans of shellac from your storage areas. Bring them to the biannual Hazardous Waste Collection this Saturday in the Canyons  parking lot.  Carolyn Murray has the details. 

The Recycle Utah Board of Directors has named Carolyn Wawra as the orgnazation's new executive director. Leslie Thatcher has more.
